I haven't done this (or much else) for a while now, so here's a jig from "The Great Nothern Tune Book" that I have only been able to find one recording of.  Apparently, I do not have any access to listen to it online, so I have had no point of reference as to how it should be best played, which means I'm probably going too fast with all the wrong bass notes!  I've also got to work out how to end a tune properly as pretty much all I've got at the moment is "just stop playing" and it is just plain awkward sounding on this tune.

Anyhow, this is "Seeking the Galloway" played on my latest acquisition, along with the usual collection of mistakes...

Hurrah for the late burst of recordings - excellent! Time to move onto a new theme; late entries as ever, just plug them on the end of this thread.

Oops - slightly beyond 'last minute'.  I wanted to give my newly acquired 4 stop an airing though so put up this hasty straight to camera vid.  I got the box from Martyn. It's not new, is German but has hardly been played since new hence the bellows are still stiff.  Add that to the fact that I've never played a 4 stop in the past and that I've not properly got to grips with the scales for these toons on this box and you won't be surprised by the result.  I didn't even edit off the fumbling about at the beginning.  :|bl
